What are your passions?
To me, good food and good design make life worth living. I'm big on fashion, nature and wellness. Like many creatives today, I'm a true multi-hyphenate! I own a boutique creative agency called VLC Inc. and recently opened a multi-functional creative studio called VLC Studio in downtown Toronto. My day "job" consists of running both of those, so I wear quite a few hats!

I've recently got super into vintage furniture, specifically space age designs. I go into holes reading about the influences of Ettore Sottsass, the Castiglioni brothers, Gaetano Pesce, etc.
What song do you have on repeat?
What's your favorite season?
Spring! Sorry to be cheesy and cliche, but it's a hopeful time full of life :-)
What's next for you?
I'm just about to start organizing some pop-up/IRL experiences in my newly-opened studio!
